App for homecare workers

By using Smásaga, in-home nursing workers can document information about clients in real time through a smart phone which automatically registers the information straight into Saga, the individual’s electronic medical records. Smásaga therefore enables more quality control, better adherence to protocol and ease of work for staff.

Innovation and Product Development in Origo's Healthcare Solutions

The Covid-19 pandemic signficantly accelerated digital development in healthcare. Many of the challenges that arose, such as the organization of screening, the tracking of infections and the management of infected individuals, had to be solved with information technology. The Icelandic health system's solutions to these challenges attracted a great deal of attention outside the country, but the success is largely due to the great development of digital infrastructure.

Smásaga - app for in-home nursing

Health care workers are one of the pillars of society. Their work touch all our lives in various ways. Origo has been in the frontline of developing health care solutions and developed the Smásaga app for health care workers. That development was in the final stages when COVID-19 hit.
